Skyshards are items in the open world you can retrieve for skill points. Retrieving 3 skyshards will grant you a single skill point. There are hints inside the achievement window (press J, second 3rd tab) which can tell you the locations of each skyshards.

    Starting ESO guides Dulfy? Love ur GW2 ones, see u in game!

    • Yup 🙂

      • RabidCoqui

        I’ll be trying ESO this weekend for the first time so was pretty happy to see you were doing these in case I decide to go with it.

        This is probably not the best place to ask, but curious if you had plans on Wildstar? I’m on the fence on that one myself.

        • Undecided yet, will depends on how much time I have

          • Hakko

            Would be real awesome if you could also take a look at Wildstar for guides Dulfy :>.

          • iceberg265

            I am in beta for both and Wildstar is easily 30 times better than ESO, you should dump ESO for Wildstar.

            • Funny. I’ve heard the exact opposite. Maybe this is case of opinion vs. opinion. /gasp

              • iceberg265

                Whoever told you the exact opposite has horrible taste.

              • You aren’t a smug asshole, at all. Tell me more about your clearly superior opinions about all things.

              • iceberg265

                You aren’t a self righteous hypocrite at all.

              • Well, you win. I’m out of things to say. Have fun playing Worldstar, or whatever it’s called.

            • Ste Davies

              Wildstar = Wow 2.0 and yes i have played numerous beta’s for both. ESO caters to a specific market.

              • iceberg265

                If you had played Wildstar AT ALL you would not call it WoW 2.0. The only thing remotely similar to WoW is the graphics style.

                Besides, WoW = Everquest 2.0 anyways, so you should have called Wildstar Everquest 3.0.

              • Ste Davies

                It sucks end of discussion, the graphics make me want to vomit

              • iceberg265

                Oh well if you said end of discussion then you automatically win the argument and end the discussion. I wish I would have known that years ago…so many arguments I could have won…

    Nice to see you playing Elder online 🙂 Browsed your gw2 guides all the time when I needed something.

  • Jason

    Been checking out ESO myself. Kinda frustrated with the dead end bugged quests that haven’t been fixed from one beta to the next…but really appreciate the guides. Thanks!

    • JessicaM

      For the beta this weekend, they are using an older build. They are mainly focusing on their server hardware.

      • Jason

        Just makes me a little nervous since the game comes out in less than a month. I understand we are publicly testing the server hardware…but they are showing off their product to the world of mmo players also, and they aren’t putting out a very clean product. I can honestly say I would not pay $15/month at launch for this game. Most likely going to wait a few months. Which is a shame, because this has loads of potential.

        • Ste Davies

          Don’t pay it then, but these are stress tests understand the Term Stress!!!. Designed to stress the system this wasn’t content testing in anyway. People who don’t get that often make that assumption I’ve seen fixes and they are fixed. And a lot quicker then games in the mmo world fix their bugs today i might add.

  • Dan

    ESO just hasn’t gripped me so far feels forced…wildstar though looks more exciting

  • w

    awesome, thank you very much!

  • b92303008

    I have always enjoyed your guides, so I am really looking forward to seeing you in game. Please stay in Tamriel and keep up the good work!

  • 4 the realm

    Good job. Keep on doing!
    I will look forward for more Skyshard maps from you, and I would be even more interested on some maps with Lore books location.

    • Maps with lorebooks are coming, they are a bit harder to collect than skyshards due to lack of hints but I managed to grab quite a few 🙂

  • Yoshua

    Dear god yes, thank you so much for this!

  • Drewdrew

    awesome! I was about to check to see if you were doing ESO, and looks like you are….Donations to follow after this post….

  • Nimble Scamper

    cool a guide i can use in few months when it go’s F2P

    • Chris

      Honestly I personally dont think ESO will be F2P in a few months.. maybe more like 9 months to a year.. I doubt they will release it as F2P that soon after launch..

  • Lord Zalla

    Pre-ordered the Imperial Edition and cannot wait for March 30 so I can begin to play. Still unsure what class I’ll play first. Likely a Dark Elf Sorcerer, we’ll see.

  • edup_2004

    only 1 more week….

  • Lord Zalla

    Dulfy!!! I have a question. Is there a way to make your map display the various dungeons and towns you’ve discovered? For some reason mine only shows the pvp objects and none of the PVE markers ie: dungeons, towns, points of interest.

    • Click M, go on filters (it looks like a little funnel) and turn the pve ones on

  • Demonio Fernandez
